One's frontal lobe (of their brain) is said to reach full maturity by age 25. This means, that until age 25 one is developmentally considered a teenager.
I am a few days early, but I think my frontal lobe just reach maturity.
I was sitting here thinking about how I need to write a blog and was considering writing one on the garbanzo beans I made for dinner last night and then turned into hummus. I was about to write all that when a group of seven preteens rode (on their trikes) past my condo.
I hear them yell out a saying I particularly despise. I step outside onto our patio to observe, and they say it again!
I pipe up and tell them firmly, "hey kids, why don't you tone it down."
"Fuck you bitch" - YES THEY SAID THIS! (sorry for the foul language Mom, but remember I am just quoting).
And then it happened. My frontal lobe matured past teenagedom and said,
"I will find your mother. And I will -"
I get cut off with laughter and the preteens bicycle away.
I almost laughed at myself. I will find your mother?? Oh geez!
